“Intelligrill®, Powered by Feather” is an Open-Source ESP8266 WiFi Grilling Thermometer with 128×32 OLED Display

If you’re grillin’ up a storm for the upcoming holiday be sure to check out Greg Zumwalt’s (of Lady Buggy acclaim) project Intelligrill®, Powered by Feather which is not just a display thermometer but also provides a countdown timer based on the ‘desired’ temperature of your future-meal. It does all the calculations for you and displays the ‘running time,’ ‘estimated time,’ and ‘estimated time to go’ in a webpage and also on the OLED display. Cool! I mean, ?hot?!

“Intelligrill®, Powered by Feather” is a wifi enabled remote grill, smoker and oven thermometer with the added feature of providing real time updates of when the “main course” will be ready to serve. By constantly monitoring the change in food temperature over time, “Intelligrill®, Powered by Feather” provides you with a very reasonable estimate of the time remaining to when your main course is ready to be moved from the grill, smoker or oven to your table. You simply specify the temperature you desire, and Intelligrill will keep you constantly informed of the cooking progress and time remaining via the Intelligrill OLED display and via a wifi connected web browser of your choice.

“Intelligrill®, Powered by Feather” is programmed in C/C++, HTML, Javascript and JSON, which means it will communicate remotely with most any wifi enabled device having a web browser (e.g. no more App Store, no more iOS update induced failures). Intelligrill can be used as a simple wired digital thermometer, as a wireless digital thermometer (when using the Intelligrill access point), and as a long distance wireless digital thermometer (when used with a wifi router).

You will need soldering skills and soldering equipment, wire, and all parts listed in the first step, plus an Arduino IDE with appropriate Adafruit libraries installed, to assemble and program Intelligrill.

Please note that Intelligrill is copyrighted and is a registered trademark of Zumwalt Properties, LLC. However, I’ve included all Intelligrill source code and the Autodesk Fusion 360 design file in the upload, so feel free to modify Intelligrill for your own personal, non-commercial use. And please publish your results as I would truly enjoy seeing a much better Intelligrill presentation than mine!
